Indonesia court upholds President Widodo's victory in April election

JAKARTA, June 27 (Reuters) - Indonesia's Constitutional Court on Thursday confirmed the victory of President Joko Widodo in April's presidential election, dismissing accusations of cheating by rival Prabowo Subianto.

A panel of nine judges ruled to uphold the official results released last month by the General Elections Commission which showed Widodo had won the race to lead the world's third-largest democracy with 55.5% of votes.
